31 Days of Halloween: Day #16 … Gothic Inspired Halloween Decor Ideas

Welcome back to my 31 Days of Halloween series.  Today is Day #16, and I’m sharing some Gothic-inspired Halloween decor ideas.

Today is all about Halloween decor.  I love decorating for the Fall and Halloween season.  When I first moved on my own it didn’t hit me how important it was to personalize and decorate your as it evokes memories and a sense of belonging.

I’ve never had a particular style and since I’m in a small space, I create Halloween inspired niches on everything that has a surface.  Decorating with pumpkins, signs, lanterns, and leaves, are fun, but I’m partial to the Gothic-Poe style of decorating for Halloween.

You don’t have to spend a ton of money to get the gothic style and you can find items to craft and up-cycle around your home.

With just a few items you can create a gothic-style setting for Halloween or a haunted house motif.  Some other items that set the mood are spider webbing, black gauze cloth, Kombucha bottles, old books, or thrift store items that give the look of something older or vintage.

Here are just a few more Halloween Decor Ideas from Pinterest.
